Can Resin Bound Systems be laid in any weather?
Weather conditions such as rain, humidity, dew, wet aggregate or any other ground moisture can present a big danger to your Resin Bound system. Moisture and resin react together instantly, producing gas bubbles which will appear as foam or clouding within the resin. It is critical that you avoid moisture at all costs.
Be aware of the temperature on site too, as this can effect the curing times and therefore the finished result. Always refer to the resin manufacturer’s guidelines. It will also be harder to complete the trowelling process as it gets hotter due to the increased setting time caused by heat. In the cold, the resin will not cure as easily. When using the UV-stable resin in cold conditions, the addition of a catalyst is necessary to achieve adequate cure rates.
